Good show overall; I just don't like it when they haste Eyes like they always did in this era.

I have to agree with the first review, this sounds like Municipal Auditorium, and it sounds very good indeed. A fine show.

Subject: This Is The Real Deal Folks !!!
I've been waiting for an upgrade of this show for a few years now, and SirMick has provided a very competent and very much appreciated matrix. The SBD is not overly vocal-saturated and the 60/40% mix is just exactly perfect. And for some reason, it blends very well too. Usually, AUDs and SBDs can be so different in clarity and dimension, you notice the separation in the mix. In this matrix, with the SBD being a little softer in the capture, the separation is not there and the recording sounds more natural to me. This is a very well produced production. Thanks SirMick. Nice job.

And in saying that, with this being a killer performance (as per my other Neumann KM-184 AUD review of this show, I am happy to give it the ol' GD "X" Factor seal of approval. This is a hair-raiser kids. Grab it while you can !!!
